  1. My Bones III Kickstarter fulfillment arrived a couple of days ago, and I've been happily sorting through them. I've engaged in all three Reaper kickstarters so far, but I doubt that I'll do another — it's not that they're not a good deal, but there's always a very, very long wait for them to arrive, and they've all been very heavy on the character figures, of which I really do have an ample supply. I mainly want the monsters, and it'll be simpler just to buy them individually when they eventually appear in the shop. I chose this one to start the painting with, mainly because it would be very quick and easy to do, and in fact it only took about twenty minutes. It probably would have taken longer if I'd actually removed any of the mould lines, which I kind of forgot about in my enthusiasm. I don't know what its SKU is; I couldn't find it with a (fairly brief) search in the online store.
  2. 1st time poster longtime lurker :) Its my 1st time working on a ghost mini and I am looking for some advice. I and using the white basecoat then verdigris technique to try and paint this guy up but I feel like there is something missing from it. I also feel like the I need to do something with the center hollow part on his front side. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks in advance all!
  3. This is the Sea Ghost from AD&D module U1: the sinister secret of saltmarsh. It will hopefully be used in my group's upcoming D&D pirates campaign set in 1600's Jamaica. Its layers will be separable, with each surface being a sort of game board for each deck of the ship, from forecastle/poop, to main deck, to cargo deck, to bilge. I'm going to try to pin the layers together so they don't just fall apart by using the mast and rudder to keep the layers aligned when they are stacked. It is made of 3/4" polystyrene insulation sheets, cut, stacked, and sanded down with a belt sander. In the end it will have paint and probably balsa wood details. That's the Barnabas Frost mini that I posted in the show-off forum standing on the deck in a few of the photos.
  4. So, when I first tried painting this, I made tolerably decent base for it, coated it with Tamiya Clear Green, and observed that the details were totally unclear. So I highlighted it with yellow. And it looked .... AWFUL. And therefore, I put it on the Shelf of Shame, from whence it has been reproaching me these past three years. "Fiiiiniiish usss," the ghostly damsels kept whispering to me in spooky undertones. "Nope," I said, and returned to all kinds of other projects. "Awwww," they would say, and disspiritedly return to moping in their eldritch green flame. But tonight, I finally decided that the only solution was to disregard the translucent plastic and paint the ladies as if they were any other mini. Thus, I give you a Ghostly Summons. Pics linked for nudity. Pic 1 Pic 2 Pic 3 Pic 4 Pic 5 Pic 6 Pic 7 Pic 8 Pic 9 I had to wipe the whole thing down with a wet brush to remove the surface dust first. >.> I think the skin tone on the green one came out best. I have no earthly idea when I'll actually use this mini for anything, but at least they're off the Shelf of Shame.
  5. Practicing spookiness before taking a crack at Mansions of Madness ghosts.
  6. Was asked to paint this up for a friend who loves Japanese stuff and is planning on running a game based around Asian stuff. Not sure of the company, they just handed me the mini. The base I had was a teeny bit smaller then the actual mini. So I moved the limbs a bit to make it look like it is creeping off the base. Actually really like the effect. Kind of wish it was my mini to keep.
  7. This was started as a small-ish side project, but ended up being a big-ish project. With a lot of new things for me. The ghost is an old mini that I painted many years ago, and was quite happy with at the moment. And as I started up in this hoppy again, I thought I might build a base for it. I wanted it to look dark or low-light, so used a bit darker colors as I would normally have used, but I still wanted to use colors. I'm really happy with the result, I think it's the best piece of landscape I have made. And I learned a couple new things. A big thanks to all that commented and came with ideas and helpfull tips throughout the process. The Wip thread is here. Figures used; The Ghost: I think it is an Ral Partha, as most of my minies from back then seems to be, or does anyone recognise it? Skeleton: 77018 Reaper Skeleton Archer set, converted. Skulls and grave stones: Ristuls. Vegetation: Army Painter turfts, Noch and some home-made from an old brush. Tutorials more or less followed; Hanging moss on the tree: http://laughingferret.blogspot.com.au/2011/04/to-z-spanish-hanging-moss-tutorial.html A lot of good stuff: https://daggerandbrush.wordpress.com/
  8. I try to comfom to the posting title and tags rules as laid down by the high and mighty,..please let me know if anything need to be done differently. --- So, 2017 has arrived.Time to mess about with spirits. The first series of translucent Bones were made either in orange or in a bright greenish tinge, and it seems I only ever got round to painting one or two of the green ones. We can't have that, can we? As with all the translucents, the key is to prime the model with matte varnish. I use Army Painter Anti-Shine spray for this. After that I use mainly inks as they also are translucent. I have learned the hard way that normal paints are opaque and should be kept to a minimum if I want to keep the minis even slightly translucent. For this piece I started with a liberal coating of Vallejo Green Ink, taking care to draw off exessive pooling of ink with a damp brush. After that I used some old red lidded hexpot Citadel Turquoise Glaze on the bottom half. I detailed the mini with a very light dusting of normal light bone paint on it's visible skeletal hand, and a slightly heavier drybrushing of ScaleColour Cobalt Alchemy light blue metallic on the sword and crossguard, as if it is half-materialized. I also painted the inside of the hood's cowl with ScaleColor Bloodfest Crimson (a very dark red/brown). What cannot be seen in the pictures are the pinpoint bright yellow/green eyes in the depths of the cowl. The gravestone with skulls was done in typical greys and bone-colour with a simple strong tone quickshade for effect. Now all it needs is some matte varnish to take the edge off the shinyness of the inks, but that will have to wait until springtime. 77097 Grave Wraith Reaper Bones KS1 Sculpted by Bob Ridolfi Green translucent Bonesium PVC 40m base
  9. I know I'm not following the guidelines by entering more than one mini per thread, but there's a theme to these. I'll take more chocolate to the next con and beg for forgiveness then. First up, Lurien 03170 Next, Spirits 03298 Now a mini I picked up at the paint and take at Origins, Sorrow from Malefaux: And some Zombiecide, well, zombies. The models were shiny when I go them already primed at the paint and take at Origins, and painting did not do much to knock it down. And finally an Iron Wind Metals mini to go with the zomibes: Not as many models this year, but I did get some nice ones in my order from Reaper today, so maybe a better showing next year. Happy Halloween! Bonus mini, 77352 Demi-Lich. Not really happy with this one. One interesting thing to note, though. There seems to be more than one skeleton on the base...
  10. Made a coven throne from the start collecting set. Now it just needs basing.: WIP pics:
  11. This is the Ghost from Reaper's Bones miniatures line. I got started on it last year with a few quick runovers with green ink. Since then it has been collecting dust on the shelf but I figured I might as well finish it. So I did some highlighting on the face and hands and painted the headstone.
  12. This is actually a mini that I painted at least a couple of years ago. I'd seen quite a few versions where people had painted just the hands and head and left the robes translucent, so I decided to do the opposite and paint the robe. I still painted the hands and skull with some Tamiya clear green, and gave them a quick highlight with white.
  13. This week I painted the "Drowned Spirit" figure to use as a wraith in my Frostgrave games. This figure was newly released when I was planning my Frostgrave harbor terrain build, and something about it just made it seem like the perfect fit to be a ghost to haunt the old harbor. So, I ordered it during the12 Days of Reaper promotion, and just now got around to painting it. To help convey the frigid Frostgrave look, I added a Water Effects icicle under the rocky outcropping and used snow flocking n the base. Also, I went with a glossy finish, instead of my usual matte, to help bring across the wet look. It is just intended for game use, so I probably didn't devote enough time as the figure deserves, but I'm really pleased with how it turned out nonetheless. As always, C & C welcome.
  14. Hope you guys like it :).
  15. I just want to show off the non player minis I painted for my Dungeons & Dragons club over the past year. Today: everything undead Starting with zombies, I got me some that could fit in a fantasy setting: http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/zombie/sku-down/06135 http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/zombie/sku-down/03598 http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/03601/sku-down/03601 next up are skeletal warriors. I love these figures, they remind me so much of the old Ray Harryhausen movies. http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/06133/sku-down/06133 Then we got Dragoth, the defiler http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/02056/sku-down/02056 The ghost king http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/02991/sku-down/02991 And the whispering tyrant who - being quite a snap taller than average human - makes a pretty good level boss http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/60060/sku-down/60060 ...hope you like them
  16. Hi ! My first Bones mini for test (after Cthulhu) :) ... A really simple paint, and super cool mini :
  17. Here is another one of my vintage minis. I was going for a simplistic "Scooby-Doo" villain style glowing white ghost for this mini & rather than paint the lantern as an actual object, I wanted to make it part of the spirit of the ghost.
  18. The female ghost for my campaign.
  19. I really love the Bonesylvanians. After taking Derek Schubert's "Monochrome Painting" class at the Reaper Artist Conference last October, I was really excited to try my hand at it. [side note: Check out the miniatures he used for the class demos (and later finished up) in Derek's forum post here. Give it a shot, it's something everyone should try at least once!] I won't claim that I painted Gus using only black and white-- I added a bit of blue too! I painted him using only Ghost White (of course), Snow Shadow, and Blue Liner. The only exceptions to this are his eyes = Brilliant Blue and his tooth = Pure White. Overall, I'm pretty happy with how he turned out. I found that painting white can be a real challenge and that painting monochrome is leading me into some interesting future painting studies in values and textures!

  20. So, this is a rather big project for me. been in the planning stage for a long time now. Almost afraid to start.. I am not much fan of the egyptian parts of the warhammer undead armies, and decided I want to try having a more gothic undead army, which means creating my own stuff to proxy. I got a little carried away, and decided to make all of this into a little diorama. Ordered a ton of bits and pieces, and had to pay through the nose in government custom fees.. but what can you do? :D Anyway, here is a little test of how things will be: So far it consists of: 2xNightspectres, 77099 Ghostly summons, 77095 Dragoth the Defiler, 30010 Crypt of the Vampiress, 02990 Altar of Evil, 77139 Female: Victim, (P02580C) Shannon (body), (P02083A) Back of Throne (P02068B). .. and some jewlerybead skulls..
  21. Again two more ( tired yet of this Undead invasion?). Ghost is from Harlequin, Zombie from Grenadier.
  22. So I finished the Undead Regiment. Background story.. the Vampire Queen lost a big battle, fled to a swamp/jungle area. Subdued the swampfolk and now faces a rebellion. Some swamp creatures follow her, others oppose her. Here is the full regiment. Mixed Manufacturers. Mixed types of Undead. I will post them separatly or in smaller groups for better pics of them all. I will try not to flood the forum, so today the regiment and the first solo/smaller groups. The rest will follow shortly. The Vampire Queens heraldry is red and purple so all the Undead have this colours somewhere. Also as a sign she is mistress of the swamp, her heraldry has a snake in it, variations are found on the shields and banner. Now the horde:
  23. Just a couple of creepy minis I've been working on between other things (Rope guy was painted up a couple of months ago, Wire guy last week). Didn't put too much time or effort into either of them, but I think they turned out really good. Comments and criticisms are, as always, most appreciated.
  24. Some more of my older work. Are you people tired yet from all my reposting?? These are my Ghostly twins.
